Why does the world’s financial chaos come as a surprise to anyone? All throughout history we see that when an institution has control over the masses, the power it generates will corrupt even the noblest of men; “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Has history not taught humanity that to place one’s trust and hopes in things that are easily corrupted and manipulated, is foolish?
The Holy Bible does not guide us to place our trust in things that decay and that are easily corrupted, but to place our trust in things of value, like Hope, Love and Joy that can only be achieved by knowing Jesus as Lord.
19 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Matt 6:19-20)
God has instilled into each and everyone of us a Moral Compass, to help guide us through life. Humanity is veering to the extreme left of righteousness by accepting a Progressive Humanistic Liberal Lifestyle.
Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits” (1 Cor 15:33).
When you are living an immoral lifestyle, you and those around you are susceptible to the consequences of your actions. I must warn you; if you are living a life contrary to God’s Laws, you will pay dearly for your rebellion, for ALL ETERNITY!
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor 6:9-10).
The pathway of Covetousness that many traverse, is the incubator of greed and the Wide Path that leads to self-destruction.
13 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matt 7:13-14).
There is an old saying, “There is a sucker born every minute.” The flimflammers and con men of the world know how to cash in on your stupidity if you allow them; but you do not have to fall into their trap.
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. (Matthew 24:4).
Dear Saints, do not fear, for these things that seem to be out of control are written, and what God has set forth will surely follow the path laid out. I need to stress to you that you are in control of who and what you are, and no man can ever take away your freedom of conscience.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Cor 10:13).
Call it as you see it.
In His service, Rev Ron
